mark on tea set

Hi, I tried to post these photos before. They are from a tea set that my Aunt has had since the 1950's. I believe the set was purchased in Japan.
Any information re what the mark says, or how old they may be?

Hi, both marks say 'Daming Zhenghua Nianzhi', Chinese marks, but they are spurious.
From what is visible on the right one it is definitely Japanese, not Chinese.

Chinese marks (and designs) were copied in Japan from early on.
